Finalists in the 2019 Leamington Business Awards have been announced.
A judging panel of leading Leamington business experts have shortlisted 38 finalists from a record number of nominations, including in two new categories for this year The Warwickshire Achievement Awards and Warwick District Charity Award.
Established in 2014, the Awards champion and celebrate the work of local businesses, individuals and organisations while also raising vital funds for local charities.
The judging panel is made up of: Roger Scott of Lloyds Bank; Sarah Windrum from IT Consultancy Emerald Group; Louise Richards from touring dance circus company Motionhouse; and Mark Ashfield, Managing Director of HB&O – and former awards organiser.
Jonathan said: “This year we saw more applicants than ever before. Judges particularly commented on the quality of the submissions. People seemed to take it even more seriously this year and put in a lot of effort.
“There were some very hard decisions that had to be made but the toughest ones were in the New Business and Independent Business categories.”
He added: “There were some very impressive entries in the Young Person of the Year category, inspiring youngsters who are working really hard and making an impact in their community.”
Returning to its previous home, this year’s glittering black tie awards ceremony on November 15th, will take place at the newly renovated Royal Pump Rooms and presided over by Master of Ceremonies Dave Sharpe.
A winner from all the categories will also go on to be selected for the prestigious Judge’s Choice Award – Business of the Year.
Nominations for The People’s Choice Award, sponsored by The Leamington Courier, are still invited until November 1st. Visit: www.leamingtonbusinessawards.co.uk/enter-a-business
